Great Ambition For Christ

Great Ambition For Christ

 

Great Ambition For Christ

 

     It is our responsibility as believers, to be the best that we can be for Christ.  We should want to please Christ at all times.  No task that we take on for Christ will ever be achieved without first having the ambition to complete the assignment.

 

     We as Christians need to be careful not to confuse our ambition for Christ with worldly ambitions.  These ambitions for the world are dangerous for Christians, because we can so easily take our eyes off Christ for power, wealth, and popularity, which therefore lead to self ambition.  Any time self is present, Christ is usually absent.  Christ need people whose main ambition is to further the glory of God’s kingdom.  We all need to take an ambition test, to see whether our ambition is Christ centered or is it focused more on worldly ambitions.  Too test our ambitions, let’s ask ourself this question; this ambition I have for Christ, will it exalt his name and edify the body of Christ, or will it edify and promote self, the world, or some other person?  The answer will tell us, what our real motives are behind our ambitions.

 

     It’s great to have an ambition when it is centered around Christ, because more of us Christians need to win more souls for Christ.  We have become lethargic, and lazy in our witness, we need to do as Paul says in Romans the 11th verse “and that knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed .”  It is time for the church to wake up, and get about our father’s business.  Let your ambition for Christ drive you to higher heights, and deeper depths in him.  May God bless you.

      "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." Ephesians 2:10

      God has a plan and purpose for us which includes all kinds of good works He wants us to do FOR HIS GLORY. Let's ask Him every day what HIS plan is for us and how we can fulfill it.
